Snaffle and XData – The Perfect Match
Snaffle is a new job matching website in New Zealand that is launching in May 2013, Snaffle aims to put potential employers and applicants together. Applicants and Employers both create a profile filling in the required fields then Snaffles ingenious system matches the job requirements with the most suitable candidates. Any applicant that meets a job’s criteria is ranked accordingly and Employers have the opportunity to purchase the profile.
Using the XData API when an applicant or Employer creates a profile on the website a new contact is automatically created in ACT! with those details. The API is then used to record and track certain website usage in ACT! such as when a user updates their profile, when an Employer lists a new job, and when an applicant’s profile is purchased by an Employer . Any email notifications that are sent from the website to end users are also flagged against their record in ACT!
Through integrating their website with ACT! via the XData API, Snaffle benefit from a streamlined solution and do not have to account for the overhead associated with managing duplicate data in multiple locations.
